I wanted to ask about tracking cookies my McAfee scans are counting up. Two scans ago the count was 1200 cookies. There were 3200 tracking cookies the scan before last and 4500 cookies today. The virus removal section says zero were removed. Are they building up really fast or have they been removed and the numbver I see is a cumulative count?
OR, if they are building this fast, how do I remove them???
It's cumulative I believe but it depends on what version of software you have as to how they are removed, stored or restored..
Cookies aren't usually harmful and in fact are an advantage when browsing as it's how a website remembers you.
The latest VirusScan seems not to have any way of not detecting them unfortunately.
